Morals do exist, and the simplest morals are unequivocal; no subjectivity necessary. Kant defined the moral imperative as those societal rules which enable society to prosper if adopted by everybody; e.g. respect for human life. If nobody respected human life we would perish as a race; hence respect for human life is a moral imperative regardless of where you are or what status you have.

And your last statement - no it’s not ok. The fact that it happens, doesn’t make it ok.
